Scientists have made an exciting yet baffling discovery, lurking around 40 thousand light years away from the Earth, but still within the confines of Milky way: an object that's heavier than any known neutron star, but too light to be classified as a black hole and spinning around a pulsar.
Alternatively, the object falls into a 'A Black Hole Mass Gap'. Which has bewildered researchers for years. Is it the heaviest neutron star ever observed? Or could this mean that black holes can be lighter than just 2.2 solar masses?
